From Prison to Princeton to the Priesthood
“From Prison, to Princeton, to the Priesthood” is a story of redemption, resilience, and grace. This presentation given by the Reverend Ricardo Sheppard will follow Father Sheppard’s personal journey from his incarceration in the state of New York for 12 years, to attending Princeton Theological Seminary, to becoming a priest in the Episcopal Church. This presentation will deal with issues of mass incarceration, racism, and successful reentry into society after prison. Most importantly, a person of color will be the one presenting. There will be a Question and Answer session after the presentation where Father Sheppard will honestly answer questions about these tough subjects.
